Car Hire Siena
Siena is famed for its 'Palio', the manic horse race through the town that pits friendly rival against friendly rival and neighbourhood against each other but this isn't the only attraction of this beautiful city.
If you've collected your pre-booked car from Florence Airport or chosen to hire a car in Siena, you are recommended to park it on the outskirts of the centre and go in on foot to enjoy the beauty without the chaotic traffic in the narrow streets. Don't worry, there'll be plenty of opportunities to use your hire car later!
Car Hire Siena Mini Guide
Whilst in the centre, admire the Piazza del Campo around which the Palio is run then climb the hundreds of steps to the top of the Torre del Mangia for a stunning panorama of the city. On your way back down, pause to look at the fabulous frescos painted by Lorenzetti.
Also around the Piazza you'll find the beautiful black and white Duomo, Siena's cathedral containing the world famous Piccolomini Library. Next door to it is the Opera Museum, again a fascinating visit.
Go back to your cool air-conditioned rental car now and take any one of the roads out of the city into the breath-taking Tuscan countryside. This is Chianti wine country and you can laze the afternoon away with a glass from any of the wineries outside the city – just remember to appoint a nominated driver! There are a number of famous towns to visit too – San Gimignano, Arezzo, Montepulciano and of course Florence, only 45 minutes away.
